Therapeutic Massage & Myofascial Release
We have been offering massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic services for almost the entire time we have been in practice as the benefits of myofascial tissue work are many. Massage therapy helps patients recover faster and improves our patients response to chiropractic care and exercise therapy. Our professional massage therapists specialize in therapeutic massage which is vastly different than Swedish Massage which is a more superficial massage that improves blood and lymph circulation and relaxes you. While Swedish massage feels good for your and is relaxing, it is not aimed at altering fascial tissue of the body that may cause pain and restrictions.
Massage therapy when providing in a healthcare setting is has a completely different objective for care than you have when receiving a relaxation massage at a resort or spa. When you are seen by one of our licensed massage therapists the treatment was initially prescribed by a chiropractic physician in our office for a specific reason, such as lower back pain, with a specific objective, such as decreasing myofascial tissue tension to reduce pain and improve mobility.
There are several different types of Therapeutic Massage our therapist offer:
- Myofascial release
- Neuromuscular massage
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Deep Tissue Massage
Other types of myofascial tissue work we offer and perform are:
While massage therapist perform the majority of soft tissue work most of the providers in our office perform some type of soft tissue work in conjunction with other therapies they are performing. Research has shown that a multi-disciplinary approach to patient health care is linked to better results, and higher patient satisfaction. This comprehensive approach to chiropractic care is an important benefit for patients, who often deal with not just neck and lower back pain but also many other conditions such as shoulder pain, knee pain, carpal tunnel, and plantar fasciitis are common conditions that receive some type of therapeutic massage.
